Habs Press Release: Canadiens recall Frédéric St-Denis from the Hamilton Bulldogs

MONTREAL (March 14, 2012) – The Montreal Canadiens announced today that defenseman Frédéric St-Denis has been recalled from the AHL Hamilton Bulldogs.

The 26-year old defenseman recorded 28 points (3 goals and 25 assists) in 52 games with the Bulldogs thus far this season.  St-Denis scored two of his goals on the powerplay and added 101 shots on goal.

Assigned to the Bulldogs on December 9, the 5’11’’ and 182 lbs defenseman played eight games with the Canadiens in 2011-12, including his first NHL game on November 16 against the Carolina Hurricanes. St-Denis scored his first career NHL goal on December 8 against the Vancouver Canucks. He recorded four shots on goal, three blocked shots and displayed a +1 plus/minus differential, while playing an average of 11 minutes and 48 seconds per game.

A native of Greenfield Park, Quebec, St-Denis signed with the Canadiens as a free agent on July 1, 2010.


I like St-Denis but w already have 6 D playing tonight......why St-Denis?

I would have recalled Schultz because it is going to be rough tonight.

Perhaps he is being recalled to fill in for Diaz. It must be, otherwise I believe the Habs will have used all of their non-emergency (4) callups.

In any case, it is not like Cunney is averse to dressing 7 D

Kaberle is out tonight as his wife/gf will be giving birth
